The Betty Crocker of Fly Fishing

I wonder if you guys knew that all of us bloggers had a fantastic pastry chef in our blog community. I formed that opinion after I sampled some of The River Damsel’s fantastic cookies that arrived in the mail today. These are the chocolate chip variety big and thick that makes you want seconds, if fact I down two after lunch. She also packed in a great read featuring Henry Winkler’s book, “I’ve Never Met an Idiot on the River” which I will read while my back is on the mend. Emily’s thanks so much for the care package; this kind of generosity is why I enjoy blogging so much.

 I needed my spirits lifted today and Emily’s package helped with what I’ve been going through for the past two week; constant lower back pain in my right hip. I won’t bore all of you with the details but I’ve been seeing my MD, Chiropractor and Physical Therapist for the past two weeks and I’m still in pain daily. In fact I’ve never experienced pain like this before in my life. The only relief I can get from the pain is lying flat on my back, which I do quite a bit. No fishing for me or anything else until I get back on my feet, which according to the Therapist could be weeks.
Hope everyone has a great Labor Day!!

We Moved

Goodbye New Hampshire.  Hello Colorado!

In August of 2017, we relocated to Denver, Colorado.  We now service the Denver metro area, and we can drive further distances to teach in your hometown.  








Who is First Cast Fly Fishing (FCFF)

For nearly a decade, FCFF was one of New England's premier fly casting instructional organizations.  In addition to private lessons, we created a fly-fishing program for students at Phillips Exeter Academy; and taught many classes at parks-n-recreation departments, public schools, and Trout Unlimited and Fly Fishers International gatherings.  We also served our community by donating lessons to charitable fundraisers, and we created the annual Cocheco River clean-up program.

Since day one, we believe our programs have offered the best educational experiences because:


  • We believe it is our duty to work ourselves out of a job -- we teach you skills and share knowledge so that you may continue to teaching yourself.
  • We do not follow the industry standard instructional model -- we believe it's outdated, and can be a waste of time and money.
  • Maximum four people per class -- a small class provides constant contact with the instructor and the best educational experience possible.
  • We offer step-by-step, developmental learning -- we don't believe in cramming a lifetime of knowledge into a 1-2 day program -- that's not how the human brain and body works.
  • Classes taught Monday through Sunday, at your convenience -- we don't herd clients into large, weekend only classes.

    Ready for Lessons

    We offer four fly casting classes, ranging from beginner to advanced.  Classes are taught in Wash-Park and surrounding communities.  Please visit: http://firstcastflyfishing.blogspot.com/p/lessons-guiding_22.html

    Big Trout Awesome Float

    I spent early Sunday morning this past week on the best float trip I’ve ever experienced landing some of the largest browns and rainbow trout I’ve ever landed. My son-in-laws Dad, Ron made the trip with me which was his first fly fishing experience. David Perry, our guide had him casting in no time and on fish soon into the float. The fog was still on the water in places as we made our way down the banks using our 6 weights 9 foot fly rods.

     
     
    Nice rainbow that give quite a fight on the 6 weight; this trout and the others I landed made up for the number I lost. Fish seem to always hit when the fisherman isn’t watching.

    Ron with a quality brown!

    After landing this brown I can honestly say that it put up more of a fight than the rainbow I landed earlier in the morning. I lost another brown in this size range because I wasn’t able to maneuver it away from structure.
      The prize of the morning for me was this 22” brown, which was the largest trout I’ve ever landed. I was beyond happy from the look on my face! A big thank you to David for making this one of my most memorable trout fishing trips; I’m looking forward to our next outing!!
